Our Current Topics

Our newsletter is published 4 times a year. It informs about new developments, projects or events of the EAS Division.


Microchip Lifetime Prediction

With the increasing miniaturization of microchips and new manufacturing technologies, the task of predicting aging processes of electronic components is becoming particularly challenging. Fraunhofer IIS/EAS researchers therefore developed efficient mathematical models for the prediction of the degradation of transistors. For the first time, this gives electronic designers worldwide the opportunity to accurately predict the behavior of circuits for years in advance.


Predictive Maintenance as the Maintenance Strategy of the Future

On June 23, 2017, the VDI will dedicate a "Special Day" to predictive maintenance in the industry. Led by Fraunhofer IIS/EAS, this seminar will focus on innovative maintenance strategies and demonstrate the competitive advantages through intelligent condition monitoring. Participants are provided with a specific checklist for the introduction of predictive maintenance in their companies.


The Global Electronics Design Community in Austin, Texas

From June 19 to 22, 2017, the global electronics design community will meet again at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Austin, Texas. At this leading event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS will be presenting its comprehensive portfolio of system development support in modern semiconductor technologies.


EDA Medal 2017 for Dr. Manfred Dietrich from Fraunhofer IIS/EAS

At this year's EDA Workshop on May 8 and 9, Dr. Manfred Dietrich was awarded the EDA Medal 2017. He is being honored for his life’s work and his outstanding commitment to the continued development and distribution of design automation in Germany.
